What is the best way to apply CimeXa Dust to my bed sheets?

I am trying to apply CimeXa on the lower edges of my bedsheets so when the bed bugs come to feed on me, they'll have to crawl through the CimeXa. How thin of a layer should I apply?


CimeXa Insecticide Dust is not labeled for application to bedding at all and should not be applied directly to bed sheets.  Per the product label, for bed bug treatment:  "Remove bedding and take the bed apart.  Treat the interior framework, joints and cracks in the bed frame.  Treat the mattress and box spring, paying particular attention to tufts, folds and edges, and the interior framework of the box spring.  Remove wall-mounted head boards and treat the back side.  Treat picture frames, moldings, hollow furniture legs, cracks and crevices, along baseboards, and any areas with visible signs of infestation, including rugs and carpet.  Treat upholstered furniture by removing or lifting (if possible) the cushions and treating the undersurface.  Treat the interior framework, cracks and joints of the furniture, and the folds, tufts and edges of cushions and other upholstered areas.  Treat wall voids by removing electrical switch plate covers to allow access, but don’t apply dust directly in electrical boxes. Apply about ¼ oz of dust to each accessible void.  Please take a few moments to review our How to Get Rid of Bedbugs treatment article for more helpful tips on treating your home for this pest.
